Experience and expertise
Mitchell Hamline’s full-time and adjunct faculty know the real-world problems facing legal and business professionals today. As an independent law school, we move quickly to adapt our training to the most timely and significant issues. We were the first law school in the country to adopt best practices in online education to allow students to earn a hybrid online/in-person J.D. at an ABA-approved law school.
We combine our experience in online education with our strong connections to the business community through our seven centers and institutes focused on issues related to business, health, dispute resolution, child protection, Indian law, and intellectual property. These professional legal education programs channel that broad expertise into high-quality, highly relevant training across a range of subjects for executives, business owners, attorneys, emerging leaders, and other professionals.
